After a good rest within the guild halls the party was met by Macarnold Of the harvest guard. He came in angerly as he had been looking for them for a week. MacArnold deliever the party a letter stating they needed to return immediately and that things had taken a turn for the worst.

Without farther notice the order picked up and began the ride south to Wrieth. Along the way Natalie and Dogface spotted a merchants wagon traveling at 2 am in a rush. The two flagged the wagon down and went to look inside. Once there they were met by a man with a fake accent that was transporting large amounts of goods north to O’niel. After a bit of conversation they let him go and natalie followed closly. After a while the man went off the beaten path and was “ambushed by Kobold”. It was apparent that he was working with the beasts as he put up no resistance and was led to back to the river tied up to be left for wanders to rescue on the road. When confronted by the order the man played dumb and then swallowed an acid capsol after he was found out.

With this new information the party continued on to Wrieth to find it in a state of military lock down. With Soldier’s everywhere, many shops closed down, and worst of all Lord Wrieth petrified. His Son Sir Wrieth took the throne as acting ruler and asked the party to investigate the kobold robberies. According to him there were 5 other reports from the Harvest Guard of this exact thing happening. With those words the order of the dawn packed thier things and headed toward the site of the kobold robberies.

Who assassinated Dean?
Is there a Secret Kobold Base in this Region?
Was Natalie really a escort at the Smith and Harp?

All these questions answered and more on the next exciting adventure of Barchiel’s Choosen…!!!!

Barachiel and the shark jaw vampires
Session 8

Time Past – 34

After escorting the Firewells back home Lane Stills explained to the party that he’d had a dream about Barachiel dieing and telling them to meet her on a mountain. Wasting no time at all , the order began their trek toward Mt Daye being sure to avoid Wrieth for fear of another mission.

Along the way the party encounter a set of gnomish assassins near Jane’s Plantation. Despite being quickly dispatched, the gnomes did come with some disurbing news. On the body of the slain assassin was a bounty sealed with a wax mark that was broken. Despite being broken Dogface wasable to make out that the seal was royal.

After a few days the knights passed by their guild house to find te construction coming along nicely. The party stopped in to drop off the Orb of the Firewell and to insure that any future recruits would be well taken care of. They spoke with Robert Whisk who explained he had been stationed at Bend Point along with gnomish cavalry to oversee the construction of the keep and to collect taxes on the White River. After giving him a few instructions they continued to the mountain.

At the base of Mount Daye, the party encountered a Kobold tracker that offered up her services and was quickly welcomed into the group. Within no time the party located a finely masoned entrance into the mountain. The entrance led to a long stone stairwell that guided the party up and around for a few hours before they were greeted by a pale woman standing in the middle of the well.

Without muchwarning the woman demanded the party to leave. When they refused she Summoned forth a group of dire wolves to attack them and then vanished backward into the mists of the cavern. After defeating the wolves they continued pushing forward until the party once again encountered the woman. This time she attacked, revealing sharp fangs and summoning more swarms. After a tough fight the party defeated the woman and continued though the mountain. Once more the party was stopped by more Vampires, This time a group of 6. After exchanges over the death of their convent mate the too attacked. The battle was leaning away from the Order of The DawnUntil a small black ball of light hovered in and begun to scorch the Vampires.

The Party followed the ball with in ashing vampires along the way until they came to a large masterful door that it unlocked. Inside they were greeted by a woman with a huge Mechanical arm who introduced herself as Mother Rebekah. She then led the party back to a gathering of the black lights that surrounded a withered Angel that looked to be little more then a corpse. Mother Rebekah Introduced her as Barchiel, The angel of the Black.

Speaking through Mother Rebekah, Barchiel explained that she had been shielding the last of humanity from the evils outside the ccontinent. She also explained that she could not keep it up and thus called out for several champions. As of now only the Order of The Dawn responded to her plea. In doing so she had weaked this bubble even more. She asked that the order go about awakening her other brothers and sisters that remained. The only one of which she knew about was Anachiel, the Angel of the Red that had inclosed herself in a tower that boils the seas to the west.

In addition Barchiel asked that the party help to quam the conflict inside the content so that humanity would not wipe itself out and that they eventually venture outside the Veil and stop the evil at it’s roots by defeating the Evil One. With those parting words Barchiel granted them one of her Archons and sent the Order of the dawn along thier way. It was at this point that the Kobold tracker had heard enough and left the group wanting no part in this upcoming conflict.

Nobles. Assassinations, and Kobold
Session 7

The party had just been knighted by Lord Wrieth and were made to mingle. Each party member took a different noble family to speak with, none making much head way. It became apparent that the nobles, spare a few, wanted little to nothing to do with The Order of The Dawn.

  • O’neals were kind to the Knights.
  • Firewells came off as arogant and had nothing but bitter things to say about the party
  • Whitepiers were offended the the “poor country knights” were even talking with them.
  • Mctiers had an evil pressence about them. The Party Saw that they had undead features attached to them
  • Yellowgems were intimidated adn the party stayed away from them.

During the party after drinking wine, Lord Wrieth began to feel sick and fell over poisoned. After rounding everyone up the party managed to have Tabit scry the cup gaving a list of the races that last touch it.

Session 6

Days past – 8 days
This time on McE……

1 week,1 day until the battle
The Party began the night with a trip to the Smith and Harp to collect on there reward. Each party member choosing the girl of the liking and settling any bicking with a game of rock paper scissors. Each Girl and party member was pleasantly trilled with thier outcome except for Buttercup. She was paired off with Lane, the fearless paladin.

Lane Spent the night with Butter cup lecuring her on her ways and reciting verses from the Bible of Sabriel. It was not until She began to fall asleep and that’s Lane began to probe Buttercup about why she chose her profession. Buttercup explained she enjoyied her job and enjoyed performing more then anything. It was after this confession that Lane vowed to find a Noble house willing to take her as the court bard. The Firewells seemed the most likely canidates.

1 week until the battle
Alicia Droggle explained to the party that she planned on arriving around 2-3 days before the battle. With that in mind the party ready themselves up and began the journey westward to Jane’s Plantation. Before leaving Wrieth, the party encountered High Captain Mars coming into town. After a bit of talk, he explained he was in Wrieth to speak with Lord Wrieth about issues involing the nobles. The party then spent a bit of time training with Mars before heading out.

Along the road the party pasted through many fields and saw a huge portion of New Mino’s Bread Basket. However after coming into Jane’s farmlands they instantly noticed how much larger and more vibrant Jane’s Crops were.

At the plantation the party was greated by Jane. Immediately Trog became infatuated unable to look away from her devilish eyes. Jane then introduced her three daughters. Odette, Sammy, Janus. Despite their lack of family resemblance the three did seem related. Trog then went with Odette to board Eggbert. Once inside the Oddette began to throw herself at Trog, Meanwhile the rest of the party waited outside discussing battle plans and how four woman could run a farm this large on their own. It was about this time that the party rushed in on Trog and Odette before anything major could happen, leaving Trog blue.

The party continued to question the odd behavior of the family, from the lack of farmhands to the pristine condition of the living spaces and even the lack of answers the Ladies could provide. After a bit of questioning the family invited them to a nice Pork Feast. Only Trog and Dogface decided to go while the rest of the party strayed off investigating the farm. Things began to heat up between Trog and the females at dinner until Dogface joined them, once again leaving Trog blue.

That Night it was decided Trog and Dogface would stay inside, while Lane and Ezel Watched the home from the outside. In the middle of the night Ezel gave the warning signal, Once again making Trog Blue who had snuck into Odette’s room. after going down with him and dog face, Odette locked the doors. The party then went through the fields to chase a shadowy figure. Dogface stayed behind to stand watch.

Lane became was insistent on the creature being evil and continued his pursuit, following it with the party into the woodline. After doing so however the skys opened up and began to pour down. It was at this point that the party head pan pipes and could see Jane. She was staring upward at the sky with tendrils coming off her entire body dancing in the rain. Lane moved ever so slightly wrong causing his armor to rustle and starled her. There whats a blurr of hair as a saytr rushed by before Jane melded into a tree and the party headed back to Dogface. Only then did they realize she was a nymph and the “daughters” Pixies.

Day of the Battle,
A day Prior Captain. Droggle had arrived with her 30 men at arms. She explained that they’d lost 2 men after an encounter with bandits but not to worry. They went off to prepare the battle field laying down Barricades and oiling the fields.

The Battle itself was fierce. Capt. Droggle lost most of her men, as well Lane was almost slain having his armor sundered. In addition Trog’s faithful mount Eggbert passed. Thanks to the AoE spells of both Eliza and Dogface, The battle was won before the Kobold could claim anymore lives. When burring the dead 2 things became apparent to the party. 1) The kobold were member of the Order of the Claw. and 2) Capt. Droggle seemed to have an almost distaste for her Orcish Soldiers. On the ride back the party questioned her to find out that the orcs were prisoners of war. They converted to Mce soldiers after wiping out most of capt. Droggles original troops when she was stationed in O’neal.

Knights of the Dawn
After arriving back with the fresh bounty of the battle the party was met by Warren Stone. He rambled to them about Lord Wrieth wanting to knight. He explained that the main reason for their hasty Knight Ceremony was for political favor. It was an excuse for Lord Wrieth to meet with the Nobles that had been harassing him and find out who was behind the assassination attempts.

After Briefing Lord Wrieth, Capt. Droggle met with the party letting them know Lord Wrieth was waiting for them. Lord Wrieth was busy writing as they entered. He explained that the [[Order of the Claw}] Apeared to be the Kobolds strike force, Where as the Order of the Egg was their dragon hatchery. After a brief conversation on the mission Lord Wrieth Informed them they were to be Knighted that night and a grant party would be thrown in their honor. All they need do is give him the Name of their new order and He would send the plans for their Order’s keep to be raised. After much thought the party decided on The Knights of the Dawn, With the crest reflecting Eggbert in a rising sun.

That night the party was well met with Noble families from all across the lands as they were knighted.

What does the future hold for the Order of the Dawn…..?
Is one of the Noble families responsible for the assassination attempts on Lord Wrieth at the party…..?
And what important mission has the elven rouge been on to keep her from the battles at hand……?
All this and more in the next session of Barachiel’s Choosen….. Z!!!

Session 5

Days past – 2

Last time on Barachiel’s chosen…

The party awoke to find their roguish friend was missing. After informing one another, the party went outside the Wirey Mast to find the owner of the Smith and Harp waiting to greet them and thanked them for the return of Spearamint. Shortly after, the team was greeted by one of the Wrieth House Guard .

The House guard led them to Lord Wrieth who was sparring with his son in the courtyard of Fort Wrieth. Lord Wrieth then explained to the party that he was aware of an oncoming Kobold conflict but that he was basically powerless to send any real troops to aid them due to red tape he was facing from the noble families in the region. Instead, Lord Wrieth proposed the party go to Jane’s plantation and fend off the incoming Kobold army with the help one of his captains. Of Lord Wrieth’s available captains, the party chose Alicia Droggle. Alicia is a soft spoken woman, until it comes to handling her troops.

Capt. Alicia then brought her soldiers to the Wirey Mast to introduce them to the party they’d be working for. When the party met them, her squad of soldiers consisted of 32 green skinned Orcish barbarians that Alicia had recruited from “the other side” while in O’niel.

What adventures await our heroes?
Can the Orcish barbarians be trusted?
Will the Kobold ever be stopped?
This and more next session…..
